Mega Man X5 (PS) - 8-bosses beaten 0:30:59 - Chris Kirk
I know I originally said I wasn't going to improve my last run, but I just had to. Big thanks to Zianchu for cluing me in on exiting out of stages to get parts.
This run isn't perfect by any means, but it's a big step up from my last one. All new route and use of both X and Zero. The route could possibly be better, and the execution in some parts was icky. I'm still happy with how this came out. Another improvement is a possibility, but not for a while. School's in session.
Intro Stage: Towards the end I missed the wall jump up the ladder. The stage could have looked better, but my concern was Sigma. That fight went perfectly.
Hotarunix: The spike traps weren't exactly cooperating, but in actuality they helped me big time. The miniboss is too damn random. Black head on top = BAD.
Dinorex: Part 1 went real smooth. The Ride Armor was being unresponsive, but again, I wasn't worrying about it that much. The boss door for this stage is the worst. If your stunned by a bat, you can't go through the door. That's why I took my time getting to it.
Dynamo: If it weren't for that one hit, it would have been perfect.
Pegacion: X would have been a great choice for this stage if it werent for the fact that he sucks against Pegacion with just the Buster. One of the shooter enemies wouldn't let me pass. But over all, this went really well. especially the boss fight. picked up Speedster
Grizzly: Not much to improve on this. Danchien on the trucks is a huge time saver. Picked up Hyper Dash
Necrobat: Hayate is a bad weapon. you cant do anything until the after image goes away. Aside from that, this stage went great.
Makkoin: X shines in this stage. I fudged during the boss fight. Again, not my main concern. I still cut my original time down by 1-2 minutes approx.
Dynamo again: Absolutely perfect
Rosered: The stage went fine. A short delay on the boss, but fine.
Kraken: From first to last. Weird. The second to last ladder was real gay to me. I also took more damage then I wanted to.
Segment 12 is a filler. I was originally going to try and get the cannon to work, but after 25 tries I just gave up. I exited in and out of Kraken to get the Z-Saber plus.
Black Devil: Great except for the part equip. At that point I wanted to get into the damn stage.
Rangda Bangda: Here's why I really want Shock Buffer. RB just takes so much out of you. The stage was near perfect. I wish I could say the same about the fight.
X vs. Zero: Naked X. How a loathe thee. Jumping into the capsule was really stupid. The Zero fight was great. Thanks a bunch Quick Charge!
Boss repeats: Ultimate X owns all. I missed once on Rosered and a few times on Hotarunix.
Sigma: Beat him before he did his blue waves of death. Real surprise
Gamma Sigma: Not much to complain about. I notice that using the E-Tank wasn't necessary, but I didn't know that at the time.
That's that. Be sure to watch the credits. There's a surpirse for you! Enjoy!
